Refresh your skills and knowledge on how to safely assist clients with medication.

If you have previously completed HLTHPS006 Assist Clients with Medication (or a Medication Refresher in the last 3 years) and are looking to refresh your skills to remain current, this online course will provide you with the updated knowledge and skills needed to support a person to self-administer medication.

In this course you’ll refresh your knowledge about commonly used medications and potential side effects, and the safe administration of oral medication, drops, lotions and creams within your scope of practice.

Successful completion of this course will enable you to continue to assist clients with medication in a range of residential, community and health care settings.

Once enrolled, you will have two weeks to complete the course via a series of activities and quizzes. You will need to allow approximately 6 hours to complete the course content.

*Please note – because this course has been designed to refresh the knowledge and skills for the HLTHPS006 unit, it is assumed that you have previously completed that unit and remained current.
